This is not true!
I am not against Linux, however I don't like the way the Linux kernel developers
personally attack people who tell them where they make mistakes.
Let me make an example: if you take Linus Torvalds statements on Linux kernel
include files for serious, then it is _forbidden_ to test kernel interfaces.
Also it is a matter of facts that the Linux kernel people constantly insert new
snares against CD/DVD recording.

This looks uninformed and I am not sure whether I should belive that you know
what OpenSolaris is.
Solaris is free!

Maybe the problem is that Debian accepts bug reports for things that are not
broken (at least not inside cdrecord).

- Linux kernel folks modify interfaces without notifying the users
even though there are less than 5 Authors who write software that
uses the related interfaces.
- Most Debian patches _cause_ problems instead of fixing them.
- Debian people do not cooperate by not talking to the Authors of the

Suse agreed some time ago to publish the version of cdrecord that is
similarily broken as the Debian one under a different name and to publish a
mainly unmodified version under the name cdrecord.
